State of the Market Report: SLAS 2024

We’ve used our Data Visualisation tool to show you the statistics of this year’s Society for Laboratory Automation and Screening (SLAS) conference 2024 held in Boston, MA.

Should you attend SLAS? Tradeshows take up a lot of time, money, and resources so you need to know whether you will get a good ROI from them. To help you make your decision, the information below allows you to quickly see an overview of both the researcher and industry data in the SciLeads platform including the number of researchers and organizations attending the show and which countries they are from. For those targeting researchers you can also see the top application areas of those attending, and for those seeking BioPharma leads you can see what other tradeshows organizations frequently exhibit at.

As SciLeads covers over 1,500 tradeshows each year with the data being added on average 2 weeks before each show begins, you can quickly and effectively plan your tradeshow attendance and budget allocation. Click here and we will send you a free overview of the top tradeshows for your application area.

Below are the specific concepts within each scientific paper the researchers have published. This year the top 3 focused research areas at SLAS 24 are Mice, High-Throughput Screening Assays, and Drug Discovery. This information is beneficial to see whether many researchers are attending the show within your application area.

We also have geographical information for the researchers and organizations attending the show. As you can see most researchers and companies reside in the United States with 362 researchers and 274 companies. Next is the UK with 35 researchers and Germany with 33 companies. Third is Germany with 33 researchers, and the UK with 31 organizations.

This data allows you to see how many people in your target territory will be in attendance and can help you judge how many staff to send to the show and/or if it’s worth having a booth.
